    J'ai travaillé chez The Institute of Cancer Research en Contrat Permanent

    Avantages

    Facilities - superb! Within Breast Cancer Now one has access to a wide range of equipment that is relatively well maintained, it's rather well organised.

    Inconvénients

    People and management. As always, depends on a team, but some (senior) staff and PIs have been getting away with appalling treatment of more junior researchers. Not very progressive in thinking, very hierarchical, not a lot of scope for innovation.

    Zero career progression opportunities

    Conseils à la direction

    Introduce penalties for poor management and unfair treatment.

    J'ai travaillé chez The Institute of Cancer Research en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Lots of nice people in the organisation (other than the team i worked in).

    Inconvénients

    Too much office politics, gossiping and pettiness in the finance department. Not a nice work environment to be in because of this. Members of the team gossip constantly about each other when a member goes out of the room. No sense of professionalism.

    Conseils à la direction

    Get rid of negative bullying behaviour that currently exists in the team as it is poisonous and unhealthy. Certain members who have been at the institute for a number of years believe themselves to be some sort of authority figure when they are at the same level as you, they need to be put in their place.

    Point de vue négatif
    Désapprouve le PDG

    Je travaille chez The Institute of Cancer Research à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    I guess the HR department asked a few long term employees to please write some good reviews to balance out the plethora of negative ICR ones. It's filled with backstabbers and of all the teams I only saw one that functioned properly without drama.
    There are a number of smart, talented, cool people there, but I'm at a loss to recommend anything specific about ICR as a company.

    Inconvénients

    This place is terrible-only the partners who push work off to the minions will tell you otherwise--they have a financial obligation to keep up the charade.  I have never had an experience like ICR, and I hope to never encounter a workplace as toxic for the rest of my life. ICR site in Sutton in the middle of nowhere, with the worse link to city centre. Unfriendly workplace, absent mentoring, I don't know how the icr has the name as best research institute when is not.

    Conseils à la direction

    Eliminate the current management. There are huge problems with how certain aspects of the organization is being managed, evidenced by the very high turnover, worse place for your career. Hire human beings, and treat staff as an investment, not a means to an end. ICR is the worse research institute I have ever worked with. The HR dept filled with highly incompetent people. ICR praise team work, however such thing does not exist within its walls
